James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Sharpe, 11 March 1804 (Abstract)

§ From William Sharpe1

11 March 1804. “By my information it is learned that a Treaty or Treatyies is to take place between the United States and sundry Nations of Indians on the Western waters. If the president of the United States through the medium of you my good Sir, would think proper to appoint me one of the Commissioners for that porpose, I flatter myself that it would not reflect the least discredit to the government which I love and admire.”
